The Fracturing of the Democratic Party is Now a Real Possibility - Nathan McDonald (29/10/2018)

The political climate has been getting worse, a lot worse, and anyone who denies this, is simply sticking their heads in the sand, hoping that it will all just blow over and go away.

I understand if you are taking this approach, choosing to turn off the Television, or as many people are now doing, disconnecting your cable entirely.

Mainstream media news coverage, whether it be CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News, has become unwatchable, unless you are simply viewing it for comic relief, or are a hardcore partisan.

 

Rational people are taking notice and there is no turning back, now that the MSM has decided to go down this path of click bait coverage. The genie is out of the bottle, and this is now the only way that they know how to compete with online, alt media news sources, who can run on razor thin budgets, outflank them and frankly, are just better at the job.

 

However, even though rational people are turning away from traditional media in droves, it still does hold some power, at least in the short term.

 

As I have covered here many times, the radical left, and the far right have been affected deeply by this non stop media propaganda, propaganda that has turned brother against brother and child against parent, fracturing many families with differing opinions in the process.

 

Yet, it is one side, that is being affected much more than the other. The Democratic party.

This should come as no shock, as the media is still most effective when targeting those who identify themselves as "far left". The numbers support this, with the bulk of the media being incredible biased against President Trump.

 

In fact, a recent study has found that 92% of the media coverage is "negative Trump". This comes despite the fact that the economy is chugging along at a feverish pace and despite the fact that he has recently landed a number of very successful trade deals, all of which have been expressed as " positive" by all parties involved.

In addition to this, he is the first President in modern history who has been able to make any serious headway in regards to the constant thorn in the West's side, known as North Korea. Effectively getting them to completely and utterly end their nuclear arms program, a program which has been a real and serious threat to the West.

 

Ironically, despite all of this news being good for not only the United States, but the West as a whole, the media has scrambled to constantly and consistently find a way to spin the news as anti Trump, riling up the radical left as they do so.

 

This has gotten us to the point in which we find ourselves today.

 

The radical left, unlike the far right (the latter of which has been largely ignored by the Republican party), has essentially seized control of their party, to the point in which the Democrats are now calling for violence against the right.

 

What is this madness?

I'll tell you what it is. It is the beginning of the end for the Democratic party, and what will ultimately lead to the fracturing of their party, as it attempts to find its footing in this "post Trump" political climate.

 

The radical left are going to continue to commit acts of violence against peaceful, law abiding citizens, such as what was seen recently in Portland Oregon, a shameful and disgusting display of villainy, while the center left grows further and further apart ideologically from their "old" party.

 

This is going to lead to a great fracturing, and we are going to see a new political party rise up within the United States, resulting in two parties, where once there was one.

 

One of these parties will be led by the radical left, driven by thugs such as ANTIFA and other unsavory characters, and another of which will be run by rational classical liberals.

 

Mark my words, change is coming, and the left needs to be careful what they wish for and even more careful about how they attempt to enact this wishful thinking, lest they wish to destroy not their enemies, but themselves in the process.

 

Until sanity is restored, expect the far left to suffer a series of defeats, as they drive more and more rational, sane individuals out of their party and onto the sidelines, handing President Trump and thus the right another victory in the upcoming 2020 elections.

 

Don't believe me? Wait and see.
